GREENSBORO - According to a USA Today/Gallup poll, most 65-and-older seniors support Mitt Romney, while young adults under 30 support President Barack Obama by almost 2 to 1.

The 18-percentage-point difference in the presidential choices is one of the electorate's biggest demographic divides.

This one pool shows the gap between republicans and young people. Can the GOP party turn it around?

News 2 spoke with Politics and History professor, Michael Bitzer of Catawba College who explained the gap.
